The Eighth Annual RNA Center Retreat

2018 RNA Center Retreat Logo

Official logo of the 7th Annual RNA Center Retreat. Included in this design is a 2D UMAP (Uniform Manifold Approximation and Projection) model of over 184,000 human lung cells profiled by single cell RNA sequencing. The design of the nucleobases is based on the Yale RNA center logo. The two colors are the Yale blue and an official Yale accent color, and official Yale typeset. Design created by Taylor Adams and Jonas Schupp (Kaminski Lab).

The Eighth Annual RNA Center Retreat will be held on October 18, 2019 in the auditorium of the new Yale Science Building on Science Hill. Retreat schedule and registration information will be posted as it becomes available.
